7 Year Warranty From The Day You Drive Away

Quality redefined. That’s how we describe our 7 year or 100,000 mile warranty: a unique and clear commitment to ensuring you benefit from the highest standards in car manufacturing. It’s also our commitment to you, demonstrating our confidence of quality in every component and that your Kia will stand the test of time.

Every one of our models is covered with a 7-year manufacturer’s car warranty, you can also pass it on: reselling your Kia within the warranty terms and the new owner will also benefit from the remaining time or mileage. It’s just one of the great benefits of the Kia Promise - giving you greater value for longer.

To maintain your warranty you must service your vehicle in line with the stated inspection and maintenance schedule although there is a one month or 1,000 mile allowance.

With Kia you get 7 years of driving pleasure, 7 years of fun, 7 years of adventure, excitement and exhilaration. Not to mention 7 years of lower running costs and 7 years peace of mind...

Frequently asked questions

The battery SOH for all Approved Used Cars should typically be in the very high 90s if not 100%.
